Last weekend I got to spend a rare treasure of a day with Liz at the beach on the North Shore (of Massachusetts, none of this north shore Minnesota business). A day at the beach is my favorite – hands down. We ended the beach day with a trip to the epic Captain Dusty’s. There are three locations but the best is Manchester-by-the-Sea. This is also the site of where I obtained my freshman fifteen. It could have been worse, Mom. I could have gained the weight from beer or something less tasty.
